Unless you've been living under a rock for the last 5 years, you've probably noticed that beards are all the rage. It seems that almost every man (but not me!) is sporting a beard or some facsimile of one these days. So I suppose we shouldn't be surprised to hear about beard transplants, which have become increasingly popular among men who have difficulty achieving that full beard look. And, at a cost of $7,000-10,000 per procedure, beard transplants can be a costly fashion statement.
This trend toward facial hair has never appealed to me, nor does the tattoo phenomena of recent years. I hope people will soon tire of all that hair and body art. Of course, during the 19th century, facial hair was in vogue for decades, which isn't at all encouraging.
